Tell us about your debt and how has this affected you? e.g. anxiety levels, financial and accommodation stress: 

I can’t understand how they could figure this out when I report my earnings.

I feel disadvantaged as I get paid monthly, so this fortnight I might get $1200-1400 and next fortnight I might get $3000-4000 depending on the hours worked but they will just average it out as my payslip shows $4500-5500 for a month.
As over the month I have one short fortnight and one long fortnight. Do know what to do.

They’ve even contacted my employer and talking about prosecution.
As I work with money I’ll probably loose my job now too.

How do you feel about the way the Government has handled this process?: 

I am disgusted & stressed to the max & don’t know how I can prove my variable hours with different fortnightly hours.
